note, the rough country shocks are almost 2-3 in shorter they they would need to be to work on this kit.

Nope. Scrap metal. I won't wish rough country on anyone. Let alone used rough country. Trevor over at MDR engines. Formerly M&D Automotive in purcellville does my work. They built my engine and did my tummy tuck too.

Cut the front of the 2nd leaf on both sides of the front springs. do the same for the rear, but the rear ofthe 2nd leaf. It will flex much more. My rc spring without military wrap broke due to too much flexiness, but the bds is beef, so im not worrying about the same thing happening.

I've seen that. I'm gonna wait to run my rig with the springs First then see if I'm gonna cut them. Its hard to justify cutting something I just spent that much money on.

More flex is better as the military wrap limits it. I understand it's Tough to cut what you spent all the effort installing. Mine are fab techs, $70 a pair. Motivational pics.

What is gt winch btw? Tech related?

I did that to my old fabtech (they where horriable) springs (military wrap as well) and never plan on doing that again. I get more than enough flex with the bds military wraps in tack!


Keep in mind this is not 100% flexed out and was taken back when I had stock length booms, I now have 5/8 booms which allow the spring to compress futher!
